In the gutter

Took my life in my own hands today. And that’s saying something as an equestrian.

I could hear a dripping when I was in my office. Never a good sound. After walking round the house trying to find it. I headed outside as I wondered if the gutter was blocked.

Yup! It’s not coped well with the volume of rain. Cue me up a ladder clearing moss from the gutter. Got rather wet, rather mucky and nearly fell off twice (the rungs were rather wet).

Adulting is so much fun sometimes. There’s still a lot of moss on the roof. So added that to the long list of things that need sorting. Fear not, I’ll get a professional for that!!


Indoor hacking

Blimey! What a wet old day. Grateful to be able to do a bit of indoor hacking today. Still got soaked walking to and from the indoor school.

Typically I got home to find my new long riding coat had been delivered. Oh my days, it’s gorgeous. I didn’t want to take it off as I was so toasty. Looking forward to test driving it tomorrow. 👏🏻

Unfortunately I got home to a new water feature and a puddle on the floor. My garage gutter wasn’t draining away so water was pouring into the log store. And my roof has sprung a leak. Good job I have lots of waterproofs as I clambered up the ladder to sort the gutter. It was simple once I saw the issue. Not a clue how it moved but the down pipe was totally covered. Very odd.

Tried to see if I could see what was happening with the roof. Still clueless on that one. But at least I sorted one of them.
